Must do

My husband and I were short on time so decided to do this boat ride instead of the other companies 5+ hrs. We didnt regret our choice. The fast boat was seek, modern and very fast. Safety was number one and we were well looked after. Great, witty and knowledgable driver. The hole in the rock was breath-taking. We even got to go inside the catheral cave since it was such a lovely day weather wise. Water was like glass so we didnt get wet at all. Dont be nervous if you get wind, you are provided a nice, long coat with hood and a lifejacket. Would highly recommend this boat adventure if you want a thrill ride and not spend a day getting to the hole.

Really fun!

It was a really fun experience. I had a blast. If you after a quiet sightseeing adventure this is not it. You will feel like you are on a rollercoaster jumping across the sea. The tour guide was fantastic - we had such a blast with him and enjoyed the stories and jokes of the islands.
